I am telling you guys right now, this is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I’ve been making it for years as an adaptation for banana pudding.
First off, let me say that I love anything banana flavored and I even like the traditional banana pudding with the vanilla wafers and meringue top, but it was never my favorite. I had a textural problem with the Nilla wafers becoming soggy and honestly, I prefer whipped cream over meringue.
The following recipe uses Vanilla wafers, such as golden oreos or my favorite, Trader Joes Jo Jo’s, as a crust. These cookies hold up and stay crunchy under a layer of fresh bananas and homemade pudding. The pudding filling has such a unique flavor imparted by the sweetened condensed milk, mmmmm…. And then to top it all off, a trick borrowed from banana pudding’s delicious cousin, banana cream pie, a dollop of whipped cream. Hence, we have Banana Pudding Pie.
Try it! Believe me, it is sooooo good.
